Obama's ticket revealed?

The Washington Post has a hot story today saying that the Democratic governor of Virginia, Timothy M. Kaine, is in "serious" talks with Barack Obama about serving as the Illinois senator's running mate.

The tone of the article implies that Kaine will be the choice unless something comes up, but it also names other possibilities, including Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. senators Christopher Dodd, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Hagel (a Republican) and Jack Reed, and former Sen. Sam Nunn.

I haven't seen any good stories lately about who McCain might pick.

My boss the city editor read this blog posting and exclaimed, "Get a woman, Obama!" I told her Sebelius would supply a woman to the ticket and would not bring any negatives, since nobody in the 49 other states outside Kansas knows who she is.

Spare me your diatribe dude. This country needs a change. Eight years of Republican "leadership" has gotten us into a huge Economic mess. I'm just glad that the the Economy starting going to pot when Bush was still in office. A great deal of the misery that we are facing is because of the Wall Street cronies, now they're paying the price, as well as hard working Americans that have had good work ethics all their life. I'm ready for a change and will accept that rather than another four years of a "Republican Stamp of Approval" to rape and pillage the Economy.

You seem real ignorant of your facts. For example, Obama is NOT a Muslim.

ReReal News:

The only 'change' this country desperately needs is a return to the ideals as originally set forth in the Constitution.

Low taxation - limited government.

The Dems tax and spend and the Repubs borrow and spend – where’s the difference?

Wonder who the Messiah Obama will pick as his Peter? Hallelujah!

McCain should pick Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. That is if she would accept it. Or Mark Sanford from South Carolina.

Hey I think I made the first post on the Register without insulting another poster, posting falsehoods, or saying something childish. I did not think it could be done on here.

‘Progressive’ is a euphemism for Collectivism – no thanks Comrade.

The cause for economic disaster is the actions and in some cases the inactions of Congress. The President is the Administrative branch. The Congress needs to be replaced in whole and a sunset clause needs to eliminate all the special interest "pork" that is destroying our financial health.

Conde Rice is a smart black woman who is a no nonsense foreign policy expert and would bring immense credibility to the ticket. She would also pull in the Hillary voters who will reject Obama as he snubs the Clintons.

Conde would also pull in black woman who are make up the largest portion of black voters.

The only group that will go nuts are the most liberal democrats because Conde is smarter than Barack Hussein Obama.

That WOULD be a good ticket. I would vote for that. I will definitely NOT vote for Obama regardless if he is muslim or not. I don't trust him. He will promise you the sun and the moon if you will follow.

Isn't Gov. Kaine for drilling off the coast of VA to potentially increase state jobs and revenue?

Sen. Obama has called for doubling yes DOUBLING, the amount of money that the U.S. gives in foreign aid.

‘…Obama will embrace the Millennium Development Goal of cutting extreme poverty around the world in half by 2015, and he will double our foreign assistance to $50 billion to achieve that goal.’

the US will need to apply to itself for foreign aid because all of our working citizens will not be able to afford anything...all our wages will go to taxes. he and Pelosi want to redistribute the wealth.
